Video: President Obama Reads Mean Tweets on Jimmy Kimmel Live
President Obama may not be the most popular at times, but once again he proved he has a sense of humor. Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live, President Obama spoke about serious issues including Ferguson and race relations. On the lighter side, Jimmy Kimmel pointed out that President’s are people too. Following the reading of the mean tweets, President Obama joked about texting, tweeting, his daily life, driving and even going to the dentist!
The President began the interview by asking why Jimmy Kimmel’s seat was higher than his? Jimmy responded by saying, “It does seem a bit ridiculous now. If you legalize marijuana in Washington, D.C. you can be higher than me.”
President Obama and Jimmy joked about Obama not driving – when Obama said he can drive, but he doesn’t, Jimmy Kimmel asked him if it had anything to do with his birth certificate?
Some of the mean tweets that President Obama read included:
“Obama’s hair is looking grayer these days. Can’t imagine why, since he doesn’t seem to be one bit worried about all that’s going on.”
“Is there anyway we could fly Obama to some golf course half way around the world and just leave him there?” Obama responded to the tweet saying, “I think that’s a great idea.”
“A 30 rack of Coor’s Light is $23 now at Sun Stop. Thanks Obama.”
The President got a laugh out of the tweet saying, “How do you make Obama’s eyes light up? Shine a flashlight in his ears.”
Obama handled the tweets well saying, “the tweets weren’t that mean, you should hear what the senate says.”
